Paper Players silver and gold challenge




It's Sunday already, the weekend went fast. I guess we were so busy doing fall chores. Taking our dock in, cleaning gutters, all that "fun" stuff.
I did manage some time to cut out some more die cuts that I borrowed from a friend of mine. I'm pretty lucky to have friends with such awesome dies, AND willing to share!

But, today it's time for Sandy's challenge at The Paper Players!



How I LOVE silver and gold on cards!

But...... it's so hard to take a picture of the shiny foil paper. If you don't get the angle just right, it looks black, or often you can see yourself in it. 
And for this card, of course, I WOULD choose silver foil paper. I used it as a border, along with SU's silver glitter paper for the word "Joy." The snowflakes are a retired die from SU. To complete the card, I just added a few silver sequins.

If you like silver and gold as much as I do, head on over to The Paper Players and play along!
